THE FINAL REPORT of the Mahon Tribunal is to be sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Revenue Commissioners and the Garda Commissioner, the government has said.

In a brief statement the government said the report would also be sent to the Standards and Public Office Commission, for their investigation into whether any public officials were in breach of ethics legislation.

It has also been confirmed that the Dáil will devote almost the entirety of its sittings next week to debate and discuss the findings of the report.

TDs will devote most of their sittings next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to debate the findings, which were published this morning.

The report will also be discussed at the weekly cabinet meeting next Tuesday morning.

The rearrangement of next week’s Dáil sittings will mean a brief delay in finalising legislation enforcing gender quotas in the next General Election.
